Yes, the All-Star break is here for the NBA, which goes from Friday-Monday. The big game is Sunday and the dunk contest and other skills competitions are on Saturday. On Friday, there are several college games including a very good Big East matchup. But with so little hoops tonight, we thought you wouldn't mind checkout the betting opportunities in hockey. We're about a month into the season and there's one team that is still undefeated-Chicago
